Hello again public library directors,

This is the second bi-weekly update for the 2019 Oregon Public Library Statistical Report. Hopefully you've all had a fruitful and fun Summer Reading season! :)

Congrats to the following libraries for completing their surveys since the last update:

*        Union Carnegie Public Library

*        Enterprise City Library

*        Weston Public Library

*        Grant County Library

*        North Douglas Library District (submitting their very first report!)

*        Curry Public Library District

Notes and updates:
Question 6.43 - Meeting Room Usage

*        I've fielded a few questions seeking clarification about whether to include small study rooms. Basically, if you have small study rooms that are available for your patrons to reserve or to use on a drop-in basis (with some sort of checkout process), and you have an easy way to count/track this usage, please include these numbers in 6.43 (even if it is typically only a single individual making use of these spaces). The big picture is that we're trying to quantify library space in and of itself as a resource provided to your community.

Question 10.1 - Population Served

*        I've updated service population estimates for most of you (including LINCC and Wasco County). If your library is a member of WCCLS, Lincoln County LD, or Coos County LSD, I hope to have a calculation for your library soon. If your library is a member of one of those 3 systems, and you are otherwise ready to submit your report, please leave me a note in the 'State' notes field on Question 10.1 and I'll be sure to update your population served after you submit.

*        If you think you're seeing an error or an edit check when you shouldn't be, please let me know<mailto:ross.fuqua at state.or.us> and I'll troubleshoot it ASAP.

As always, email me if you have questions, and please check out the instructions and FAQs for completing your statistical report at: https://libguides.osl.state.or.us/publiclibrarystats

Thank you!
